President Donald Trump condemned white supremacists during the Sept. 29 debate, two campaign officials said Sept. 30. "The president in the clip you just played, when asked if he would condemn these groups, he said 'sure.' He said it many times," Hogan Gidley, the campaign's spokesman, said during an appearance on CNN's "New Day." "Just not last night, in the past as well.

Inspector General Clears Ben Carson of Allegations He Used His Position to Benefit His Son

An inspector general investigation didn't establish that Housing Secretary Ben Carson used his government position for the personal benefit of his son. The Office of Inspector General for the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) opened the probe in February 2018 after media reporting raised questions about whether Carson misused his position by letting his son, Ben Carson Jr., invite certain companies or people to take part in a listening tour in Baltimore, Maryland. The investigation was expanded in March 2019 after American Oversight, a watchdog group, said it obtained records that showed Carson Jr. was deeply involved in orchestrating the tour and that a subsequent Read More From Source [contf] [contfnew] The Epoch Times [contfnewc] [contfnewc]

Lamprell in focus on what will be a quieter start to fourth quarter

Pinch-punch Thursdays the first in the month and offshore services firm Lamprell PLC (LON:LAM) will be in focus as it releases its next set of results. It is otherwise a quieter diary following Wednesdays end-of-quarter rush of announcements. Investors in Lamprell will be keen for an update on how the company is handling the challenging trading environment, particularly commentary around the pipeline and tenders for new business. Lamprell back in July told investors that progress through its bid pipeline (which amounts to around US$5.5bn of work) had slowed due to the pandemic. The company also said that it continues to see encouraging activity notably with Saudi Aramco and separately the fast-growing offshore wind business. It pointed out that its presence in Saudi Arabia allows it access to revenue opportunities in an otherwise challenged oil industry. In renewables, meanwhile, the company flagged that it continued to see an increasing number of quality projects. Thursday 1 Oct..
